Great clip, of course none of the powers that be today believe in Friedman and the Chicago School, they all believe in John Maynard Keynes and his bilge.

They didn't pay attention to Friedman in 1979, so not likely there has been a change of heart. (I couldn't get the clip to play)

Most of you may already know, but Milton and Rose Friedman co-authored a book, copyrighted in 1979, named Free To Choose. Was available in paperback about 1981.

Finally did get the clip to play. Interesting, Phil Donahue was a liberal of his day, so might expect that his audience was as well. Friedman's response must have been somewhat jolting to all of them. Very powerful words.
